High Line Wave

New York


High Line Wave

Since 2017, ANTA maintains a close relationship with the US structural engineering company LERA, providing a European vision of pedestrian bridges. The result of this collaboration is the proposal of an extension of the New York High Line to Moynihan Station. 

In contrast to NYC’s orthogonal urbanism, Wave’s curves are organic, interposing Manhattan’s often overwhelming urban density with a refreshing, rejuvenating landscape. Inspired by famous science fiction tropes, the design is intended to “transport” New Yorkers to a different world. The structure is a 10-span bridge with two main longitudinal box girders supporting secondary cross girders.
